The price of Milk in Australia…

Government figures released in November 2009 show the following prices for a 2 litre bottle of milk, in each State Capital.

  • $ 4.17 Darwin
  • $ 3.71 Canberra
  • $ 3.70 Hobart
  • $ 3.58 Melbourne
  • $ 3.44 Adelaide
  • $ 3.43 Sydney
  • $ 3.21 Perth
  • $ 3.18 Brisbane

The source of these figures is the Australian Bureau of Statistics 6403.055.001 Average Retail Prices of Selected Items, Eight Capital Cities

My price in November 2009, from a local vegetable store is $1.79 for two litres.

Checking the online price from two supermarkets I found:

  • Woolworths (AUS): Homebrand Milk Whole 2L $2.17 (21% higher than the price I pay)
  • Tescos (UK): OL Pasturized Milk 2L £1.18 (or about $2.27 at todays FX rate) (27% higher than the price I pay)

This made me wonder, which Milk do the ABS check the price on ?
So I found these:
